attacks in kenya and tanzania, the fbi put bin laden on their ten most wanted list. secretary of state madeleine albright escorted home the bodies of 10 of the 12 americans who were killed in those attacks. since 1970, not a year has gone by where there has not been some sort of violent attack against u.s. diplomats and diplomatic facilities around the world. not all of them are deadly, but they happen all the time, year after year after year. and nobody is more aware of that than whoever is the secretary of state at the time. and our secretary of state right now is hillary clinton. who was on capitol hill today to testify about the latest deadly attack on u.s. diplomats. the attack in benghazi. >> benghazi joins a long list of tragedies for our department, for other agencies, and for america. hostages taken in tehran in 1979, our embassy and marine barracks bombed in beirut in 1983, khobar towers in saudi arabia in 1996. our embassies in east africa in 1998. consulate staff murdered in jetta in 2004. the khost attack and many others. i could give you a long list of attacks averted, th

it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this is the problem. it's too easy to kill. >> sean: and i know a lot about guns. let me he throw it to dennis kucinich instead. i'm glad you have a fundamental understanding of the second amendment more so than anybody else on your side so far that i've heard. i'm willing to have an honest discussion, a marksman since i was 11, 12 years old. i understand more than anything about gun safety. my guns are locked up, you can't get to them. we should have ownership in these countries. and we want to stop sandy hooks. don't we have to d

on 9/14 three days after the attack told the fbi there was no demonstration, this undercut the administration's false narrative that there was an anti-islam video to blame and this came two days before susan rice's statements on the sunday talk shows, also today, a leading republican said, given mrs. clinton's performance, having not reviewed these requests and these warnings that he would have fired her. here is rand paul. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility, i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time, and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, did you not read the cables from ambassador stephens, i would have relieved you of your post. >> one thing to listen for at house foreign affairs, megyn, is the parsing of the language, what we heard from mrs. clinton al-qaeda core may be decimated, the traditional al-qaeda leadership with bin laden's death, but in fact, concedes that the taste or flavor of al-qaeda, al-qaeda 2.0 what we'

know, an f.b.i. guy moves in next door. sounds like a great show. called "the americans." >> gretchen: kerry russell stars in that. >> brian: it sounds like something we unearth add few years ago. >> steve: this is not a big joke, iran says they have successfully sent a monkey into space. they say that they need satellites and monkeys into space to monitor natural disasters in the earthquake prone nation, improve telecommunications and expand military presence. >> brian: so you have iranian contact. i wanted to find out more on this story when you were interviewing the male models. so i was able to do that. i reassembled and they've described to me what the monkey was like on takeoff. i sketched it out as they were talking to me. this is a look at the monkey. he is inside the space capsule and this is the iranian space capsule built to scale. this is the speed. you're seeing the speed coming out. that's the monkey saying, i can't believe, in monkey language, i cannot believe i'm going into space. >> gretchen: suddenly i want to be back interviewing the male model who is getting his mb

the fbi to have time to do their job, and what difference does it make whether they knew exactly what it was right away. >> stephanie: right. >> and they are still trying to figure out out like we all are. >> stephanie: but in the heat of a tragedy, and she has just been told her friend and ambassador had been killed, she is going to go wait a minute, was there a video? >> it shows their fixation on unimportant details. we're getting more and more information, and you know -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> this is what happens when you see republicans spoiling for a fight when there is nothing to fight over. >> what is to fight over is who cut funding for embassy security. >> exactly. where the hell do they get off complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch,

anything with patrick swayze. >> you mean the fbi is going to pay me to serve. [ laughter ] >> woe! >> most heinous. >> stephanie: isn't that how it ends, right? patrick swayze goes surfing and presumably kills himself -- >> well, there he goes again. >> i'm performing tomorrow night at the blue state ball in indianapolis. >> awesome. >> come on down if you are there and freezing. >> stephanie: because you weren't busy enough. >> i have no life. i love you all. >> stephanie: thank you, honey. we'll have tina dupuy next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ [♪ theme music ♪] >> stephanie: hello tv world. tina dupuy coming up right after the break here. jacki schechner? >> yes. >> stephanie: i always like to do one story a day that makes me feel better about my pathetic love life. woman choked man for hogging blanket. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: he was trying to get more of the blanket, as men do. she called police, and was highly intoxicated however. >> that warrens a 911 call. he also won't get me a glass of water. >> stephanie: all right. here she is my bff, jacki

threatened and actually scared for her life. that's why she reached out to a friend in the f.b.i and she's telling her side of the story. she didn't want to hurt anybody. general allen, although the investigation delayed his promotion, i do think it's important and caused for embarrassment and he's been cleared. all the earlier reports about hundreds of e-mail are not true. >> gretchen: but this is a case of what happens when a story goes out there and then does a retraction get as much attention as the actual story? i mean, remember, it was said 30,000 e-mails. people were scratching their heads like and they're make accusations saying how could he manage afghanistan and it turns out he wasn't. can you regain your reputation after something like that? i think it's a shame that this happened to this great general who apparently actually was doing his job in afghanistan. >> steve: he was. and the inspector general said they have cleared him of any wrongdoing. however, they were able to figure out that it was this ball la broadwell sending the e-mail she was having the affair with david pe

know, the fbi is still on the case. all of the reforms suggested by the arb are important. plus this high-threat index that the state department is implementing. john kerry must make the security of our personnel abroad a very high priority. but let's understand, these people, these magnificent heroes who work in our state department sign up to put their lives on the line, if necessary, to project diplomacy and hopefully win hearts and minds around the world. and that is important. we can't just hunker down and live in bunkers in the united states of america. >> senator rand paul who has expressed interest in running for president in 2016 said hillary clinton would have been fired over the benghazi attack if he were in charge. take a look. >> i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable.
